Tryndamere is a fighter jungler. Tryndamere can also be played in the top lane but in this guide we will focus on the jungle role. He is really weak in the early game, not having the best damage or mobility. When you farm the jungle and reach level 5 and get access to Undying Rage, this is when you can start to help your team. With your ultimate you are unable to die for a short period of time. This is great for ganking and tower diving. If Tryndamere doesn't get behind in the early game and can survive to the late game, you can do great in team fights and split pushing.
Tryndamere can also be played in the top lane, make sure to check the alternative build at the top of the page! The build is very similar to the jungle build as all the items work well with Tryndamere's abilities. With Tryndamere top, you do well at split pushing meaning you want to try and push the minions in the top or bottom lane to try and get some towers and maybe even end the game!
Tryndamere uses a mixture of both attack damage and attack speed that works well with his kit. His ultimate makes him unkillable, you don't need to buy tank items and you can go full damage to run in and deal a lot of damage. Blade of the Ruined King is a great first item that gives Tryndamere a lot of attack damage and attack speed. The item also helps Tryndamere chase down enemy champions because of the passive. After Blade of the Ruined King, you want to focus on building critical strike chance items because it works really well with his abilities.
For runes, we have the following:
Tryndamere's main source of damage comes from his auto attacks and being able to critical strike a lot. With Lethal Tempo, you can a huge burst of attack speed to help Tryndamere do more damage.
Tryndamere will be jumping onto the backline to try and kill the enemy carries so dealing extra damage will always help. He will also restore health every time he gets a takedown.
With Tryndamere, you will be in a lot of fights and ganking a lot which means you will be getting plenty of takedowns. This allows Tryndamere to get a bit more health with each takedown to make him that little bit extra tanky.
As a jungler you will be roaming around the map a lot, taking objectives and ganking lanes. Pathfinder gives you extra movement speed in brushes, jungle and river so you can move around the map a lot quicker to help your team.
Tryndamere has a decent early jungle clear. This means that you can work your way around the jungle and get close to level 5 as soon as possible. He doesn't have the best 1 vs 1 potential vs other junglers. This means that most of the time you want to go for a full clear in the jungle. It is best to start at Red Brambleback as you don't have mana and you don't lose a lot of health when jungle clearing.
This is what the jungle patch would look like:
Below is a beginner's guide for the jungle in Wild Rift. It goes in-depth about every jungle camp, epic monsters and more!
If you're able to get to the late game with Tryndamere, and you have your core items and a few levels, you can use this opportunity to split push where possible. This means going to one of the side lanes (top or bottom) and pushing the minions. However as a jungler, your main objective is to keep track of when Dragons, Rift Herald and Baron spawn. Taking these epic monsters will give you and your team an advantage in the game. When a team fight happens you want to make sure you are at the front protecting your team.
Tryndamere is a very niche pick and has a unique play style. If you like running towards the enemy team dealing no damage and staying alive on 1HP with his ultimate then Tryndamere is the perfect champion for you.
